Max is a little shy, but is so eager to please. Once he gets used to his people and surroundings, he is the first to greet you at the door for a back scratch. Then you have to take the time for an additional belly rub if he falls over in ecstasy. Because he was not handled as a kitten, he is still getting used to being cuddled. He is happy to be held and will purr up a storm if you offer enough petting, scratching, or treats. Max will need time to adjust to his new family in just one room of his new home. Once bonded, he will make an awesome family pet. He is easily won over with food manipulation and treats. Ask a volunteer about this process. Max would be happiest in a home without small children or dogs.
